1. “You remind me of __________”
I shouldn’t even have to tell you never to compare her to your ex or to a family member. (In case I do have to tell you, never do that!) But you may think it’d be perfectly fine to tell her she reminds you of, say, Scarlett Johansson, or Rihanna, or the Huntress from your mint-condition copy of All Star Comics #69. Thing is, that’s still a bad idea.
